Quite possibly a demon cloud.

Unless it was overheard making grandiose and eloquent speeches about the fall of mankind, it's unlikely, lol


One thing that stands out to me about the picture is the top of the window in question. If you look at the other two top floor windows, you can see the clear straight line between white blind and the darker blue relected sky. The blind on the 'ghost' window looks very different, as though it curves drastically. It also looks like a slightly different shade of white. The close-up crops out this effect so you can't see it in the sharper detail.

If you look at these pictures:

You can cleary see that the window in question has some kind of loosely flowing curtains as well as the blind. My suspicions are that these curtains have something to do with the ghostly effect.

But I'm not ruling out photoshop on the close-up, something about the centre of the 'ghost', round the head area, looks decidedly off.

It's either a real ghost or a fake.  

There's no way that's a cloud.

I do not believe in ghosts. Nor do I believe that it is a cloud - no reflections of clouds or the sky, even the sun, in the other windows.

It's a glass painting

This did not "freak me out". It immediately made think that the owner of that building or flat has pasted a paper poster on one of the window-blinds-(shades?). The other two windows seem to have shades of the same colour but without the poster.

That was my first thought too. I thought it kinda looked like a picture of sorts.

A live 2 hours drive from the location, there's a lot of ghost stories about people who stay in the hotel. This picture is legit not photoshopped. But the verdict is still out whether it is a cloud or a ghost. Something to do with a dead prostitute in the gold rush days.

I personally have been in the hotel and got a coffee on way through to holiday house.

Google Vulcan hotel NZ for more info.

i don't like resurrecting zombie threads, but it looks fake. very photoshopped looking to me, and i use photoshop on a daily basis.  maybe it was a reflection of a cloud with a little extra photoshop lovin'.

Lol, almost exactly 2 years to the day since I last chipped in on this topic.

And I still don't think it's a ghost.

I have to agree with Moonie, the objections about how it's not getting pixellated as you zoom in don't make any sense.  The furthest zoomed out pic is clearly not the resolution of the original pic, and the closer pics are almost certainly taken from the original and resized to fit the desired size for the webpage.  As a result, you wouldn't expect the zoomed in pics to look like mere enlargements of the zoomed out low-res pic of the building.

I don't know what it is, but I don't think it's a cloud and I see no reason to think the image has been tampered with.

edit: I didn't realise this was a 2 year thread brought back to life by someone a couple of posts ago.

Looks two dimensional to me. I say it's a picture.

Even after two years it's still a great thread to read :D
